Your favourite free audio editor has accessibility

Audacity has built in accessibility features to assist vision-impaired radio producers.

A very important feature of Audacity is the ability to fully manipulate the selection using the keyboard.

Screen reader access works very well on Windows. Mac OS X screen reader support now requires considerable adjustment following a transition to wxWidgets 3, but a 2.1.1 accessible build is available on our Mac OS X downloads page. Screen reader support still needs further development on Linux.
